What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today The Crab Dancers’ Parade

Lecture and Discussion

Takao Kawaguchi presents photographs from 1961 showing how the Butoh pioneers Tatsumi Hijikata, Kazuo Ohno and his son Yoshito Ohno danced through the streets of Tokyo. Acclaimed photographer William Klein took more than 600 photos at the time, which until now have remained unpublished. These images from the “happening” became unique archival documents for Kawaguchi. A talk about his work in photo archives, with Ong Keng Sen.
